    Speck Macbook Air Case

    • Written by from Ashland

    I purchased this case for my 13 inch macbook air yesterday in calypso blue. For $50, I hoped for something more with a longer warranty than 1 year. I can already see scratches on the front that are quite visible.. Other than that, I like the color and feel better knowing that my laptop is somewhat protected. I also enjoy that you can see the apple logo through the case and it lights up.

    Cracks within a month of use

    • Written by from Chicago

    Don't be fooled by the attractive color. All the clips that attach this cover to my MacAir have broken/cracked, rending this thing horribly useless after a month of owning it. It goes from my protected bag to a desk to a lap desk without being banged around. Save your $50. I'm so sad I wasted a gift card on something that broke so easily.

    Zero stars is really my rating

    • Written by from Broomall

    This is an awful waste of money. Cheap cheap garbage plastic that cracks VERY EASILY when you open your macbook. It seems that bottom corners crack very easily when you open your macbook and you may not notice it until you see that the bottom will not stay on any longer. This is my second purchase of this case because I thought that maybe the first one was just bad luck. I was wrong, it's an awful product and should be given out for free because that's really all it's worth.....NOTHING!!! Same problem BOTH times, cracked bottom corners.

    Horrible Quality

    • Written by from Ajax

    I purchased this case primarily because I had a similar Speck hardshell case for my MacBook Pro. I've had the Pro version for 3+ years without any issues. But the MackBook Air version I purchased cracked along the edge within the first few months. Within less than a year, several of the attachment points have broken off the case, so it no longer stays on my computer and is basically useless. I am very careful with my computer, and from reading the other reviews case cracking seems to be a common issue. Don't waste your money on this product, it does not last!

    Disappointed considering my last Speck case was amazing

    • Written by from Austin

    I had a Speck cover for my old Macbook, which my husband commandeered and it is still going strong (cover and computer). I figured since I was getting a new precious piece of machinery, I should invest in another Speck cover (especially since the last one did it's job so well). When I got this $53 cover, I was surprised at how flimsy it was and that it didn't have the grippy texture my last cover had. I figured since my last cover was legit, this one would somehow do the same job. WRONG...this thing has cracks all over it and I have not dropped it once! I submitted my claim to Speck today, since it has a 1-year warranty. I guess we'll see how that goes, but as of now I feel like this case is a total rip-off!

    I bought it about a week ago and it has started cracking. It also doesn't fit well. I am very careful with my mac, I only move it from my room to downstairs. I would not waste $50 on a case that starts cracking after a week. I am buying a new case.

    Not the best choice

    • Written by from Gatineau

    I've received this case for Christmas last year, and the shell barely holds, and cracked all over the place. Quite a disappointment since I liked it at first but it just broke down easily, and for that price too.

    DO NOT PURCHASE

    • Written by from Bridgeport

    This case is awful. I bought mine 3 months ago and it has already cracked in so many areas without any hard use. The case cracks from the inside out and around the edges pieces are prone to fall out from what seems like the very wind blowing on it. The case was a mojor waste of money, DON'T BUY IT.

    DO NOT BUY IT

    • Written by from 시흥시

    I would recommend you not to buy this book case. It can be easily broken, and I can't really see the worth of $50. It isn't durable, either.

    Pretty, but terribly made

    • Written by from Anniston

    I love this case as far as how it looks and the accuracy of the color representation (I bought the greenish case). However, after only a few weeks, pieces of my shell started chipping off. Now, I've had it for a couple of months and the piece on the side that grips my macbook air is completely gone. I'm very unsatisfied with this product. You would think for $49.95 Apple could sell a higher-quality product. I have yet to drop my macbook in the case, so I don't know how it holds up as far as that, but I don't recommend buying this product--unless of course you just want to buy something that's pretty but doesn't actually do what it's supposed to.

    $50 Down The Drain

    • Written by from BOULDER

    I am now on my second Speck SmartShell for the MBA 13" I purchased in January 2014. The first one cracked and the tabs that hold the bottom shell on literally disintegrated within 2 months of owning it. I sent it back to Speck (and paid the shipping!) and they sent me another one but this one has the same problem. When I got my 2nd one I also bought one for my hubby's MBP 15" - his has suffered the same fate despite the fact that his laptop never leaves home and mostly lives on a desk. I do take mine to work, in a padded case and I am very fastidious about the care of my laptop but still I've got a case with two missing corners, several cracks and no way to keep the bottom shell attached. This case, in my opinion, is an epic failure with regards to materials and lack of durability. I wish I'd spent that $100 elsewhere.

    Waste of money

    • Written by from Ballwin

    Had two, the first one lasted a few months before one of the clips sheered off the bottom part of the case somehow. The Apple store was cool enough to replace it for me but within a couple months, it happened again to my second one. Waste of money... would not buy again.

    Cracked After 2 Days :(!

    • Written by from Toronto

    I received this case and was shocked at the quality for the $50 price. I put it on my new Airbook, and it didn't really go on that easily. 2 days later I realized that one of the corners was lifting so I went to pull it off and the case cracked. So not only does it not go on properly, but when you go to fix it, you'll break the cheap flimsy plastic. Don't waste your time and money on this garbage.
    Luckily Apple has a great return policy so I was able to return it at no cost.

    if there were a zero option, i'd give it

    • Written by from Marlborough

    This is not worth the money. in fact, my case cracked as I was putting it on and i said, well, it's just a crack, i'll live it with it. The thing lasted a year, and basically my mac sits on my desk . Then it started cracking all over and then became lopsided.

    I do not recommend this product.

    Don't waste your $50

    • Written by from landover

    My sister purchased one and it broke within weeks. She doesn't travel with her Mac Book and it mostly just sits on her kitchen table or couch. Her case was still under warranty, so Speck sent another one. The 2nd one broke in a matter of weeks. She finally gave up. Mine broke within a matter of months. In my opinion I'm not sure how much this protects the device, so I won't be purchasing this again.

    Waste of money

    This didn't even last a year! It cracked on the edges within weeks. The other day I picked it up off of the table and it cracked even worse! This case is too expensive to break this easy!

    2nd one Don't purchase

    • Written by from OWENS CROSS ROADS

    Second purchase of Speck SmartShell - It works for a bit of time but the corners will crack on the back shell. Plastic is good on top but the over time the corners will crack and the back will slide off and not stay on.

    Cracked and broken within a couple of months

    • Written by from calgary

    I got this with my new macbook air and expected it to last at least for the length of the advertised "1 year warranty" however, the bottom was cracked and broken within a couple of months despite the care with which I handled my laptop at all times. Huge waste of 50$. This product is terribly overpriced for the horrendous quality.

    Nice case; would recommend

    • Written by from Nashville

    I really like this case. It's sleek and protective and doesn't take away from the beauty or slim lines of the Macbook Pro. It seems to have a really tight snap on fit that was even slightly difficult to remove, which I like. The original case I ordered was scratched out of the box (and not on the side with the protective peel away), but Apple had a new one at my house the next day when I called to exchange it. It's brand new, but right now I would highly recommend it even with its expensive $50 price tag. I'll re-review if I have any of the problems that others have had, but so far I love it.
